Are You Showing Up For Your Clients?

By
Real Estate Agent with Online Real Estate Agent Training

Real Estate Agents Are You Showing Up for Your ClientsTechnology has taken off like none of us could have ever imagined.  News gets transmitted around the world in a blink of an eye and we can catch up with people we had lost contact with.  Social media has forever changed our lives, but our we spending more time online than in person?

The Lost Art of Communication

Have you ever been out to dinner or at an event and noticed that many of the younger people are all on their phones?  They made the effort to come together yet don't feel the need to actually "talk" to one another.  Why bother?  I've even had to get on my teenagers about actually talking to their friends when they come over to the house.  It seems all they want to do is text, tweet, Facebook, Instagram and tumble on Tumblr.  I for one, just don't get it.  I mean, what is the point of getting together if you're not going to talk to one another?  What's the point of going out to dinner with a group of friends if all you are going to do is communicate with someone who isn't even there the majority of the evening?  That's not being very "social".  If that were to happen to me I would feel a little insulted.  And sadly, I see more and more real estate agents falling into this habit.

A Little Too Much Multi-Tasking

Time is an extremely valuable commodity and  we all want to make the most of every second, but it's rather rude to ignore the person right in front of you by constantly being on your phone.  It's important to give your client, your friends and family your complete attention.  If you don't want to see them, don't schedule the appointment.  Your client should feel as though they are the most important thing you have going on at that moment.  Multi-tasking is fine, but when you are with a client, be in the moment.  When they are looking at a house they are giving you signals with their body language that you will miss if you are constantly checking your phone.  Unless you have a major issue going on that requires you to respond immediately to a call, text or email, everything else can wait.

Technology is Great

Technology is great, but don't get so caught up in the fear of missing out that you miss out on what is happening right in front of you.  We live in an age of instant gratification and we want everything to happen quickly, but real life doesn't work that way.  Be in the moment.  Be attentive to your client.  Engage in conversation and really laugh out loud...LOL!

Excellent post.  About 6 months ago I was visiting our hometown and went to "the" pizza place.  It was crowded so I sat at the curved bar.  At the far end of the bar was an elderly couple who spent their entire time either texting or playing games on their phones.  They barely lifted their eyes to get another piece of pizza.  We all need to be engaged in others and put down that phone.

I get frustrated when I meet up with friends or clients and they are the phone the entire time. When I meet with people I put my phone away on silent. I have been known to leave my phone in the truck so the people with me get my full attention.
